Bustravel Iceland are fantastic - when we went on this tour we witnessed a fantastic Northern lights show (after rescheduling due to poor weather). We were lucky enough to have Siggi as our tour guide, who went above and beyond to show and tell us about the Northern Lights. His passion for the Northern Lights was infectious and his predictions about when and how they would show were pretty much spot on. Not only did he tell us how to spot the lights, he also showed us how to capture them on our phones/cameras and was kind enough to share his spectacular photographs, which he captured on his DSLR, with us at the end of the tour. Fabulous.
The lights were very weak when we went and you couldn’t see them through the naked eye or smart phone but, if you had a camera you could. The tour guide was very good and really tried to get us a good view of the lights. On the way home we stopped because there was more activity, which I thought was really good of them to do. They really do try and give you every chance to see them. It was -10 degrees so be prepared for the cold
Bus was 25 minutes late leaving the terminal. Not what you want at 10pm on a cold night. Did not see the Northern Lights. Was a bit disappointed that 3 buses off loaded the passengers in a small car park and we all had to crowd around the buses to watch for the lights.
We went Tuesday night of this week with Ingo (spelling?) on the small group tour and he was great. Very humorous and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the night -- the lights were limited but definitely worth the sightings.
Fantastic experience! The lights show was the best part, but found out some amazing info about the wonderful country of Iceland. The ice cave was incredible to walk through too!
